Unique

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Richmond, BC (Canada)

ProsMDA is unique. It has unique opportunities that will keep you challenged and growing. It has a good culture for staff below that at the management level with organised events, skit nights and sports. If you want to know how engineering is done well then this is the company for you.

ConsMDA keeps people by keeping them challenged and training the staff up to get better paying jobs somewhere else. However many of those jobs are somewhere other than in BC so it manages to keep the pay low as staff have few opportunities locally. The younger staff see this and tend to leave within their first 5 to 7 years. MDA needs to realise that it does alot of software and adjust to the reality that comes with being a software company, like pay, like working arrangements and like cutting edge software techniques!

Advice to Senior ManagementStop reorganising!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Idiotic Management, Fearful Executives, Great People on the Ground

    Engineer (Current Employee) Brampton, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at MDA Corporation full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: - The people are great for the most part, with a ton of very friendly and very helpful peers to draw on for knowledge.
